Restore a Youthful, Sculpted Figure with Our Help.

While motherhood is one of the greatest joys in a woman’s life, pregnancy and childbirth can create undesirable effects on the breasts, tummy, and other body areas. At SANDS Aesthetics + Plastic Surgery, Dr. Trey Sands and our experienced medical team perform custom mommy makeovers to restore and enhance your figure.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

As a result of pregnancy and childbirth, many areas of a woman’s body could be affected. Breasts become loose, saggy, or deflated, and the tummy is stretched, with excess skin and fat or stretch marks. Or, fatty areas that won’t disappear may become a problem.

A mommy makeover is a set of custom surgical procedures selected to resolve all these issues and restore the body to a youthful, firm look. The procedure can go beyond returning your body to its original slim look, enhancing breasts, and slimming your figure in the most beautiful way.

How is a Mommy Makeover Performed?

Pregnancy has different effects on women, with some experiencing extreme changes and others less, but still concerning, whether saggy breasts or stretch marks. In your consultation at SANDS Aesthetics + Plastic Surgery, we will work closely with you, speaking with you openly and honestly, evaluating your concerns, and creating a custom treatment plan to resolve the issues that bother you. The set of procedures performed in our custom mommy makeover in New Orleans may include one or more of the following surgeries:

Tummy tuck

After pregnancy, many mothers are left with a noticeable tummy bulge, abdominal muscles that appear split (diastasis recti), or excess skin and fat that no exercise or diet will resolve. A tummy tuck tightens the muscles and repairs all these issues, restoring a firm, fit, youthful look to the abdomen.

Breast Lift

Breastfeeding your baby is a bonding experience and is believed to be the healthiest option for growing babies – but breastmilk production can stretch the breast tissues to the point that when the breasts return to their standard size, they appear saggy, smaller, or deflated. A breast lift restores them to their youthful position on the chest wall and reshapes the breast mound to be firm and rounded.

Breast Augmentation

Many women find their breasts have reduced volume after childbearing or have always wanted a little more volume. Breast augmentation, either on its own or coupled with a breast lift, can create a lovely, balanced figure.


The female body is programmed to store fat during pregnancy, a holdover from when humans may face trouble finding food, allowing the mother to have a store in place to grow the baby. Sadly, this fat can be very challenging to shed, and liposuction may be the best treatment.

Stretch Mark Reduction

Stretch marks are scars caused by the skin stretching to the point where the collagen and elastin fibers rupture. These visible scars naturally fade with time, but their appearance can be improved with our skin therapies.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover in New Orleans?

During your consultation, Dr. Trey Sands will discuss your treatment options and determine whether you are a good candidate based on your:

  • Health
  • Medical history
  • Personal aesthetic goals

Certain medical conditions must be addressed before surgery is safe to perform. In these cases, we may advise you of our alternative aesthetic treatments that could be performed safely.

What is the Recovery Time After a Mommy Makeover?

The extent of your recovery time will reflect the number of procedures included in your mommy makeover. During your consultation, Dr. Sands and our medical team will outline the specific recovery times of each procedure and what you can expect during the healing process. Any aftercare necessary for incision sites will also be discussed so fully understand the recovery process. Recovering from a mommy makeover can be a challenging and lengthy process. While the results can be transformative, the recovery process can require several weeks of rest, and help from your family or friends, particularly in the early stage of healing.
